Long term, I plan on putting some sort of top on it, not sure about the details.
First things, first though:
* Swap out the 24V bulbs for their 12V counterparts
* Swap out the military HMMWV tires for civilian Chevy 8 lugs
* Replace some rusty pins/split rings etc.
* Get it registered
I want to keep the axle. The mil-spec torsion axle, which has surge+parking brakes is really awesome. When I brought the trailer home, I literally yanked it off the flatbed, with just the dovetail, no ramps attached. Didn't give it a second thought. Not sure I would have been so carefree with a regular 5k torsion axle.
I already bought the replacement tires/wheels+spare so I'm stuck with the 8 lug rims for now (plus, I'm dreaming of getting a Chevy 2500 HD).
This may be a cool build, but it'll be a slooooow build.
I wasn't kidding about this being a slow build. The tires aren't mounted yet; I haven't even swapped out the bulbs (they're sitting here on my desk). There's a guy coming next week to buy my HMMWV tires/rims. The plan is to swap the wheels/tires at that time, since I'll have an extra pair of hands to move those things around.
